Get Xbox One For $399

May 15, 2014

Starting June 9th, Microsoft will give consumers more choice by offering Xbox One for $399.99(US) without Kinect, putting Xbox One at price parity with it's biggest competitor, Sony's Playstation 4.

Since the debut of Xbox One, Microsoft has been under a lot of scrutiny for some of the choices they've made in relation to its new hardware. Packing Kinect in with every Xbox One, instead of giving consumers a choice, has been one of the biggest complaints. Microsoft has been listening to fans and have done a wonderful job of righting the ship in the recent months after launch. The appointment of Phil Spencer to head of Xbox, seems to already be paying off. Watch the announcement of the new Kinect-less Xbox One in the video below.

 

Microsoft will offer Kinect on its own separately, for those that decide they want to buy one at a later date. No price has been set yet for the stand-alone Kinect.

Microsoft dropping this announcement, weeks before E3, is a smart move. It allows the bomb-shell news to settle and not overshadow the games, which Phil Spencer has promised will be the focus of their conference this year. Sunset Overdrive gameplay leaked early and looks awesome and we know Quantum Break, Halo and a bunch of surprises are in store at E3 as well. Could Xbox One close the gap on PS4 with it's new price and focus on games? We'll find out soon enough.

E3 2014 starts in less than a month and Kidzworld will be there for all the juicy reveals and news

Have Your Say!

Does the new price $399.99 price-tag make Xbox One more enticing? Are you excited for the new game reveals at E3?
